Ron Coghlin spent years researching boat builders and boat designs, as he wanted to do it once and do it right. He approached Peter Breen just they were completing the restoration of “Elsie”, a original Ditchburn triple-cockpit. Having seen how well this boat performed, it was decided to base ‘Sandsu’ off this design. Scaled slightly larger than the original to accommodate the modern reliable Mercruiser power plant, Sandsu was built to provide practicality for family excursions in addition to having a sleek, streamline look. She was built over a 2 year period, plank on frame construction, just as the original was. Notable features include custom cast windshield hardware, front deck upswepts that mirror windshield shape, outboard rudder assembly, and side mounted exhaust plates. Sandsu is used Regularly by the Coghlin family from it’s Lake Muskoka home, where it now creates memories for a third generation of the family.
